Just Do It!

Lately, my life has felt much like The Road to Nowhere.  I've driven this road; it's long, hot, boring and seemingly endless.  Yep, that would pretty much describe what I've felt my life is like of late.

 You see, I want to do this.......

 And see those..............


 The trouble is, all of that takes of lot of  this...........

Well, truth be told, Daddy was very generous and he and Momma worked hard and saved to leave a little something for each of their daughters.  So, I actually have the money to take the cruise without adversely affecting any other plans for my future.

Now we get to the real problem.  You see...........

I've been doing a lot of this......


 And this..........

And I think this........

Just may be more along the lines of where and/or what the Lord desires of me. 

I'm not sure where or when, but I'm somewhat convinced that the Lord wants me to be personally involved in a present tense kind of in my boots on their soil and my hands helping their people.  Now, just who 'their people' are is yet to be determined.  El Salvador is a strong contender at present; so is any American neighborhood that needs help.

Margie, my sister of the heart.
Thank you to my cherished sister of the heart, Margie, for reigniting in me the yearning to live outside myself and above my circumstances.  Margie, you are my inspiration.

Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father
and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Teach these new disciples to obey
all the commands I have given you.
And be sure of this:
I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28: 19 & 20  (NLT)

Dear Diane,
You are an inspiration all by yourself.
"The fields are huge, but the workers are few."
I feel assured that the Lord who wants you to give, will give ten folds in return.Maybe not in money, but in a blessed life.
Now I am really excited. Must include that too in my prayers for you.
This post made me really happy.

I'm sitting at GM in a meeting and I almost cried!

GO! It is my guess that if you give to the Lord, He will give you your heart's desire. He gives you those desires, and then He fulfills them.

I loveyou!

I just step out and listen, He always catches me if I mess up.

Last night in the middle of the night, I think He told me I won't be going to Africa in 2013, I will be going, just not then. That doesn't make me very happy at this moment, but I am not sure, so I will keep listening.

I loveyou!!!

We always need help in Detroit! You can come here to serve, I've got a bed for you to sleep in! We are going on our Detroit Mission Trip July 23-27 :)
